There are plenty of ways to fix most problems you mentioned. And some can't be fixed so the solution is: deal with them. Simple as that. There are investments that the private sector won't do because it means losses in the long run. But the govt can go ahead and do it because overall everybody is better with said investments. Accountability is one good example.
As one example, you can make the camera have a temporary off buttom (ie: turns it off for a determined amount of time). It can be automatically off if the cop checks out to have lunch for instance. And you can set operational standards giving more freedom to the officers while making it harder on them if the camera is off in case their conduct is brought into question.
There's no excuse for pulling the plug in the body worn cameras.
So the FBI would rather have criminals accused of abusing children or contributing for such acts go free than provide details to the justice about how they got to those people. This is sickening. Unless, of course, they just wanted some high profile convictions to entertain the media and the evidence wouldn't self sustain when scrutinized.
Some people here seem to think that the judiciary has no fangs but actually forcing the cases to be dropped because of the lack of cooperation from law enforcement is part of the punishment if you think about it. Of course it should go further than that unless the people accused haven't suffered damages because the social "guilty upon accusation" mindset nowadays.
If done right, ads won't really annoy. It's just that it has gone out of control lately. Companies try to place ads everywhere they can to the point some placements actually look silly. And if they can they will flip the same placement to show more ads.
I'd say this is as bad to them as it's annoying to us. If you increase the number of ad placements and time ten-fold then you are greatly increasing the offer. But this takes value away from advertisement as their effectiveness start to drop.
And, really, if I'm paying for no ad then I want no ad. End of the story.
It doesn't matter if it demands management. If it is being effective to reduce police abuse then it should be done, end of the story. The benefits to the public are visible albeit not quantifiable (or not, you can assign values to deaths and settlements caused due to police abuse, no?).
And the cost of storage is dirty cheap nowadays (plus you have cloud storage) and you can set data retention limits. Ie: 30 days or indefinite if the footage is being used in any ongoing investigation, SPECIALLY if it's on cops themselves. See, easy?
The current situation is quite troubling from various points of view. The current president is no saint but the venue chosen to impeach her is just a soft coup d'etat as virtually all presidents since the end of the military government have done it without any punishment. In that area, the worst that can be said about her is that she is an incredibly incompetent administrator and politician. The venue I believe to be the most legitimate to take her out of her position is via TSE (Superior Electoral Court I'd translate to) because of violations in the electoral campaign. Not that the other parties are not guilty of it too but at least the court hasn't found any damning evidence for previous presidents. Getting her out serves a double purpose: the main one will probably be to pull the plug in the investigative efforts of the police and the other is to take the power. Even with the current president still on the job the vice is already articulating and the worst groups are trying to pass legislation that fits their own interests along with demanding the vice president to do their bidding when he takes over (it seems inevitable now).
It's pretty much like using terrorism to pass awful laws. Terrorism is the distraction. The trash in the politics here are taking the opportunity by generating chaos. And the Government along with the financial crisis gave them pretty much the ammunition they needed to generate the chaos.
Is it me or we have a case where the legislative wants to force the executive to implement mass surveillance and the executive actually fought back? If it is then this must be a first and this executive is actually composed of decent people!
Good point. But then again if it's standard procedure it can't be an illegal search. The only way would be to cut the phone from the world with some metallic case or bag and then keep it charged and on while stored to avoid remote wiping an whatever. You'd need to make it some sort of operational standard.
It doesn't allow any 'final' verifications on the network or on remote servers via data connections. Sure it may not be the case of this specific phone. In case the phone cannot be turned off it should be isolated from any external signals and kept plugged in to avoid automatic shutdown.
Welcome to the Great World Government. Please be warned that disrespecting any of the about 1.3 million rules will get you executed. As little reminders: Don't forget to abide by the official hairstyles and fashion guidelines, you don't want to be mistaken by an anarchist/terrorist. We value law and order. Preferably order. Don't express your opinions, you are not allowed to have any. And don't forget to salute the great leaders daily at 5 p.m.
Some places have pretty controlled temperature so I tend to agree that it isn't really an issue. I'd go for pressure and lack of air or rather oxygen. At great depths much less dissolved oxygen is there to promote oxidation. Even if the barrels are technically sealed some air always find its way in through the pores and inner veins. Remember that wood was originally a tree with a series of little vases (pipes if you will) so I'm going with that too. Remember even in sealed bottles of soft drink the gas inside eventually finds its way out.
Still, all environments could be artificially simulated for each separated component to see which one influences the process the most.
I personally thought it was funny. I think we should all make fun of ISIS and the likes because they are sick as fuck. But society chose to fear a small bunch of disorganized lunatics instead of making fun of them and doing effective things to keep them under control. Thus we got TSA, mass surveillance and lack of sense of humor.
